After Papilles we went to…

I want to introduce you to the founders of BOWS distillery: Benoit Garcia and Tony Comas – two cousins who both grew up the the Southern French region called Occitane. They have bottled their heritage in a range of organic spirits with herbs and grains from their homeland and I followed them on a Paris promotion tour a few weeks back to get a piece of their Brave Occitane Wild Spirits – a new distillery who believes in sustainability and…

Vermouth!

Here’s a little piece written on vermouth by Liquor.com “In essence, vermouth can be broken down into two major categories: dry (mostly French, mostly white) and sweet (mostly red, mostly Italian)” “An aromatized, fortified wine made with a host of various botanicals (herbs, roots, bark, etc.), vermouth has a surprisingly complex family tree. Typically originating from France or Italy and originally used for medicinal purposes (it settles the stomach, many claim), vermouth rose to popularity primarily as an apĂ©ritif, eventually…

TB Guest shifts at L’entrĂ©e des artistes, Paris

Earlier this month, on September 8th and 9th, I had the opportunity to work together with the crew at L’entrĂ©e des artistes on 30-32 rue Victor MassĂ© in Pigalle, Paris.

Milkshake throwback

Ok, now I’m back to routine and the autumn is here… But it’s hard to let go of summer. Every year. So I want to reminisce the summer in Stockholm for today and therefore post a real summer treat: a pineapple milkshake. It contains blue curacao, just for the fun of it’s color and a little for the taste of holiday, but I boiled it and cooled it down before adding it to the milkshake since I wanted a non…
